Greenberg Smoked Turkeys, a long-running East Texas family tradition, aren’t just for Thanksgiving anymore. The tradition began in the 1940’s when a Tyler man who regularly smoked meats for local families and friends shipped several dozen turkeys by train to a Dallas oilman who fell in love with the hickory fire slow-cooked bird. The Tyler-based culinary institution now ships to around 200,000 customers each holiday season. Families not only devour Greenberg’s birds at holiday gatherings these days, though. It’s now become commonplace to have the turkeys shipped as gifts to coworkers and friends. The six to fifteen pound turkeys, ranging in price from $28-$68, can be sent anywhere. The turkeys arrive at your door, fully smoked and ready to eat. And because the company suggests that the turkeys can be eaten chilled or at room temperature, there’s almost no reason for you to step foot in the kitchen when prepping your next holiday soiree. So, I guess a Greenberg Smoked Turkey is truly the gift that keeps on gobblin’.
